Kelp for livestock
I was doing some reading about how kelp was used in dairy cattle feed for jersey & guernsey.
That got my husband looking for more information. Right now, I have a pdf from him, but I need to find the source so that I can actually link to it for all of you. The article had more information than the pdf, so it is beneficial.
It covers (great) benefits for cattle, dairy, hogs, horses (with cautions), & poultry. It also covers dosages.
It could be well worth your while to try supplementing with it.
Has anyone here used kelp for your livestock? What did you observe?
